Fotoeins Friday: Prague’s Duke Wenceslas of Bohemia

Built by Josef Václav Myslbek and unveiled in 1913, the Saint Wenceslas Memorial (Pomník svatého Václava) is located at the southeastern or upper end of the square which also bears his name: Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí). Although many know him by name as a good king in the Christmas song, Wenceslas was a Bohemian Duke in 10th-century AD, and is known today as a national patron saint.

I made the photo above on 10 October 2009 with the Canon EOS450D, 18-55 IS kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/4s, f/4.5, ISO800, 29mm focal length (46mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-5BI.
